Time to call time on lead in shot - it's a no brainer!
We banned it from paint petrol and pipes but allow it to enter the human food chain - find out why it's time to ban lead shot. Sacha Dench joins Dr Julia Newth from WWT, John Gregson from Waitrose and Dr Niels Kanstrup from Danish Hunters Association on the eve of an historic EU vote to finally ban the use of lead in shot and so stop the annual killing of 1million wild birds in Europe and the dumping of 20,000 tons of poisonous lead shot across the fields on England. Hunters and conservationists are joining forces to put pressure on ammunition manufacturers and the government to implement a ban and use a safe alternative.
